Evocative in its sparse beauty, We are sure this will been the permanent playlist always, right alongside Arvo Part's "Alina" and offthesky's "Silent went the Sea" ....ss/tm/am editions vaché

Anything Jason Corder (Offthesky) touches has a golden glow...so imagine what you get if he teams up with Craig Tattersall (the humble bee) and you have pure magic. Corder's brilliance with the spatial aspects of a composition come into play, in contrast to- or harmony with- Tattersall's smoky, mysterious musings. For example, Rin Howell's vocals are right here, up front- whilst the rest is on different,faraway planes....Magical to say the least......ss/am editions vaché
